Grand Master S.H. Kang


This is our school of physical fitness that teaches us the ancient and scientific art of Tae Kwon Do. In this age
of turmoil, it is important that one maintain a strength within ones self (mental strength as well as physical strength) so that one can cope with obstacles and difficulties in life more successfully.

We sincerely hope that this school will serve you as an important institution where you can learn various virtues of the martial arts that include self-discipline, respect, concentration and competition. Finally, the instruction at Kang’s Tae Kwon Do School is constantly directed toward that attainment of inner peace and tranquility within ones self, which we hope will help us to develop harmony and peace with our fellow man.
